Let a Singaporean help your English accent in the Twente international environment

Methodologie

I would ask students to begin by identifying a topic they like and preferably have book about it. They would be encouraged to talk about the topic and use the book to give them have more things to say about it. After hearing each student, they would next work on their speech in small groups. Once, their speech has shown some accent improvements, they would be encouraged to speak in a larger group. By hearing someone else speak differently to them, and encouraging them to speak clearly and slowly at first, they would be at ease to reach into their own mental library of words and sounds and find combinations that sounds improve their accent.

Ervaring

I am a mechanical engineer by training and obtained a PhD in Mechanical Engineering at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. In Singapore, the language for conducting business is English and therefore, all my education has been in English. In an International English Language Testing System (IELTS) test for September 2018, I obtained an overall band score of 8.0 and Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) level C1.

My teaching experiences consist of volunteering to conduct 3 semesters of engineering laboratory sessions during my Masters education. In each session, I briefly explain the technical details in front of a class, followed by interacting with each small group of students as they obtain experimental readings. My teacher-training experience is limited to attending a course “University Teaching for Teaching Assistants” during my PhD education.

• Streamlined maintenance publications for document library at AS332M/M1 Superpuma helicopter maintenance hangar
• Coordinated procurement of Ground to Air radios for field work

2010 JAN – 2010 JUN Singapore Technologies Aerospace Engineering – Assistant Programme Manager
Sector: Aerospace – Work performed under contract with the Republic of Singapore Air force (RSAF) in Brunei to maintain helicopters for Search and Rescue
• Provided engineering oversight on Helicopter maintenance, repair and overhaul
• Prepared and executed flight-line work for Search and Rescue
• Provided oversight for re-supply of turn-round of critical helicopter spares
• Evaluate requirements and engage external contractors for engineering services
2009 OCT – 2009 DEC Republic of Singapore Air Force – Project Officer
Sector: Aerospace
• Provided oversight for streamlining of maintenance tools before outsourcing

Projects
2016 JUL – 2018 DEC Virtual reality for enhanced trainee experiences
In a virtual ship engine room environment was assembled from CAD files for realistic visuals, trainees navigate the virtual environment using their own body movements such as an arm swing while walking. An optimised blend of realism in colour and proportions delivered through a head mounted display coupled with actual body motion improves immersion. Furthermore, muscle memory is engaged for improved content retention.

2013 JUN – 2013 JUL Flow Visualisation in multi-phase flow loop
Choosing a cost effective construction approach, a transparent pipe section was made from gluing Perspex slabs together. The finished section was hydro-statically tested up to 100 kPa. All surfaces were polished to a high gloss finish to work with a Laser Doppler Anemometer.


Software
ANSYS CFX (Computational fluid dynamics) Solidworks (Computer aided design)
Microsoft Visual Basic (Spreadsheet environment) Unity and c# (Virtual reality)
Python (Including Numpy and Scipy)


Course/certification
28 JUL – 1 AUG 2008 RSAF Safety Management System
